    All the love and support for these kids!!! They MUST be good kids that made a mistake huh?....LOOK at them!!! Wow. At least they plastered their picture on the net. The only difference is that they will get a slap on the wrist and get a chance to reoffend which they WILL do. Maybe one of you big bad gun owners will shoot one of them when they break into YOUR house!!!

    To some of you people that are so quick to judge. Some of the ones saying things about the parents do you even have children? You can not see what your children are doing all the time and sometimes they make bad mistakes. We have to pray that is the one thing that is wrong with the world. If they would put prayer and the bible back in the schools the world would be a better place.

    It warms my heart to see so many people casting judgement on those they have never met.

    Okay, trying again.

    Why hasn't anyone on here mentioned

    This was a hate crime. I could care less if the church/academy was a certain color of green or purple but it's still a religious organization, right?

    For wakemom... I bet if these kids were black they would be held without bond and on their way to Central Prison to do hard time huh? Is that what you wanted to hear?

    Is she wrong, Elvis? Since Blacks commit a higher percentage of crime inappropriate to their population percentage, it's only fair these kids only get a smack on the bottom and sent back home to mommy and daddy, right?

    never understand how some criminals get love and support (and less than 10 comments).. while other gets put them under the jail and over 100 comments. so cody gets a pass that he is a good kid and need to learn from his mistake. yeah... guess i am the only one that see the difference.----------Oh c'mon, you know what you REALLY want to say. But you're scared that WRAL is going to censor you just like they did me because it's gonna include something about race. How ironic this is, because you've never been the one to tip toe around the issue or sprinkle sugar on it.

    "Good kids doing bad things" eh? Good at doing bad crimes, apparently.

    It is true Good kids do bad things, but Bad kids do worse and are most of the time leading the way somehow for the good kids that have done bad things. Never seen a group of quote, unquote good kids tearing things up. There was always someone bad leading the way. Chalk it up to Bad life decisions.
